The Bloody Ape (REVIEW)

“The Bloody Ape” delivers on everything it promises. Boobs, blood, and offensive material are in evidence throughout. There is an ape suit, a racist mechanic, a racist cop, an anti-Semitic carnival barker, and a whole bevy of voluptuous Long Island princepessas getting nude for Keith J. Crocker’s camera. Shot on Super 8 for half the price of a root canal at Western Dental, “The Bloody Ape” should be fun given its story and its target aesthetic.

Netflix Streaming: "My Name is Bruce"!

It's moments like these when having Netflix is worth its weight in gold. Added just a few days ago, you can now check out Bruce Campbell's pet project, "My Name is Bruce", streaming straight from their site. The plot is very "Three Amigos", with a small town kidnapping Bruce and tasking him with taking out a local demon. It's not perfect, but as you can see from my review, there's a lot to like.

Watch "Cheerbleeders" For Free!

"Cheerbleeders" started out as a thesis short film for Peter Podgursky. When it was finished the reception was so good that he began to think about developing it into a feature, and so now he's making the rounds, trying to get the word out to help raise money for the full film.

Toby Wilkins On "Splinter", "The Grudge 3"

Toby Wilkins directed one of the best horror films of 2008, "Splinter", a film just recently released on DVD after a limited theatrical run. Coming up in May, he'll also be taking on the latest in the "Grudge" franchise, so he sat down with us recently to talk about both films. Check it out.

Give people the chance to see a film on their own terms, in as many ways as possible, and hopefully it will find an audience.

You made short films for a long time before moving on to features. Is that a format you really enjoy? What was the motivation for sticking with it so long?

Laid To Rest (REVIEW)

Robert Hall has quite the impressive resume when it comes to working special effects magic. From TV shows like "Firefly", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Angel" and "The X-Files", to movies such as "Wishmaster", "Ghosts of Mars" and the recent "Red Sands", chances are as a horror fan you've seen his work somewhere. New from Anchor Bay, his second directorial effort "Laid To Rest" gives you the chance to see what Robert is capable of bringing when his work is done behind the camera.

"Plague Town" Streets May 12th

Dark Sky Films announces today the details for its upcoming direct to DVD opus, Plague Town. The film is the directorial debut of David Gregory, long time award winning provider of DVD special features and documentaries.

"Smash Cut", More Pornstars in Horror

If there's a combo for a horror movie that will pretty much guarantee every fan is going to watch it, I would say it’s put a cult icon on screen with a porn star. That’s just putting two and two together, people. Well the producers behind “Smash Cut” are clearly aware of this formula, as they have put David Hess, star of “The Last House on the Left” and “Swamp Thing” alongside the star of “Finger Licking Good: Volume 5” and “House of Ass 3”, Sasha Grey.

Splinter (REVIEW)

"Splinter" hits DVD at an odd time, when a whole host of solid limited release horror films are also hitting store shelves, so it would be easy to overlook it when you're out searching for your horror fix on a Friday night. That would be a mistake, because if you did that you would be missing out on a fantastic gem, and a great example of what can be done on limited resources.

Grace (REVIEW)

With rumors spreading of two men fainting at Sundance and women dressed as nurses walking around horror conventions cradling creepy baby dolls, "Grace", Paul Solet's first full-length feature as a writer and director, has been getting excellent word of mouth. Even Grace's rating on imdb is unusually high for an independent horror film, coming in currently at an 8.5.

"Legend of the Bog" (Bog Bodies) Trailer

While you were sleeping last week, the film formerly known as "Bog Bodies" received a new name, DVD cover, and a potential release date. Now known as "Legend of the Bog," this film looks to be tentatively slated for release on DVD this June care of Lionsgate. Judging by the poster art, it looks like this film is being pushed as a vehicle for Vinnie Jones ("Midnight Meat Train," "X-Men 3"), who plays a vagabond hunter that's trying to do away with a reanimated bog body aka mummified corpse turned bad guy from Xena: Warrior Princess.
